My name is Kim, and I’m 37 years old. I am a business owner; I own my own day care. I live in Fontana, California.
Before I came to see Coach Fatimat, I weighed 209 pounds. When I would weigh myself I would just cry, I couldn’t believe that I had allowed myself to get that big. I couldn’t walk up stairs without breathing hard, I couldn’t run with my kids or play ball without breathing hard, my waist was getting bigger, so that meant my clothes were getting bigger. I just wasn’t happy with myself anymore.
I called Coach Fatimat, I wanted a change. I know nothing worth having is easy, so I knew changing my lifestyle would be hard. I cried the first time I met with Coach Fatimat, I didn’t realize how much had been building up inside me, being a single mom, there is really no one to talk to. The job is all on your shoulders, bills, emotion, life is pretty much all on you. I knew I needed to take the first step to becoming a healthier me.
The first day was hard! The next day I didn’t think I could do it, I wanted to cheat so bad, and give up, but when I looked at my kids I knew I needed to live a long life. I want to run and play and dance with them, so I kept going. As the days went by it got easier, Coach Fatimat sent me texts and emails that kept pushing me and kept me going. I realized that I COULD do it! I slowly saw the weight begin to disappear. I was getting compliments about how good I was looking. It’s hard when you have a busy schedule, but when you start being able to race your kids and climb stairs without breathing heavy and feeling like you’re going to die, its starts changing your mind set.
Changing your lifestyle is HARD, there have been times, even now, I just want to quit, but I can’t. I have a goal and I am determined to reach my goal. I have cheated and fallen for a moment, but I get back up again. It’s okay if you mess up; life is about learning and experiencing different things. What good is life if you can’t laugh and be with your loved ones? You’re not alone; someone is always there to hold your hand. Trust me, if I could do this, anyone can!!
I am PROUD to say, I have officially lost 40 lbs!!!!! I now weigh 169.5!!! 🙂 I am so super close to my goal!! I really did not think I would ever weigh this much again!!! Thank you, Coach Fatimat for believing in me! If you have ever considered or thought about losing weight and you have felt that you couldn’t do it, trust me, you can!!! Please just give it a try, call Coach Fatimat, she is AWESOME. She has a great background on being fit. It’s really not about going on a diet, is about a life change!!!!
